because your heart was tender and you humbled yourself before God when you heard his words against this place and its inhabitants, and you have humbled yourself before me and have torn your clothes and wept before me, I also have heard you, declares the Lord. Behold, I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace, and your eyes shall not see all the disaster that I will bring upon this place and its inhabitants.’” And they brought back word to the king.
porque se enterneció tu corazón y te humillaste delante de Dios cuando oíste sus palabras contra este lugar y contra sus habitantes, y te humillaste delante de mí, y rasgaste tus vestidos y lloraste delante de mí, ciertamente te he oído–declara el SEÑOR. `He aquí, te reuniré con tus padres y serás recogido en tu sepultura en paz, y tus ojos no verán todo el mal que yo voy a traer sobre este lugar y sobre sus habitantes.’ Y llevaron la respuesta al rey
This prophecy is as good now as it was then. Who will humble themselves before God? This world and the people have fallen away, but God will save and protect those who fall down and worship Him. He is speaking! Are you listening? Worship and adore our great and mighty God, and you will come through unharmed.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Asimismo el reino de los cielos es semejante a una red, que fue echada en el mar, y atrapó de toda clase; la cual llenándose, la sacaron a la orilla, y sentados, recogieron lo bueno en cestas, y lo malo echaron fuera. Así será en el fin del mundo; los ángeles vendrán, y apartarán a los malos de entre los justos, y los lanzarán en el horno de fuego; allí será el lloro y el crujir de dientes
We sometimes wonder why God doesn’t just wipe out the evil ones. The answer is here right from the lord Jesus’ lips. We are all gathered together like fish. Maybe the sharks will learn something from the dolphins and will change their ways. If they don’t, at the end they will be cast away. Are we sharks, or dolphins? Are we goldfish or piranhas? God’s Word can give us the path to be the one who will be kept. Staying away from His Word and not accepting His Son Jesus will get us thrown into hell.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Porque nuestra lucha no es contra sangre y carne, sino contra principados, contra potestades, contra los poderes de este mundo de tinieblas, contra las huestes espirituales de maldad en las regiones celestiales
We must always remember this scripture when we are tempted to argue or debate against people who are lost. We are not battling against people, but against forces that control them. We can only defeat these forces through prayer and the Holy Spirit’s guidance. Give the battle to God, and you will win!
For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
Porque tú has sido baluarte para el desvalido, baluarte para el necesitado en su angustia, refugio contra la tormenta, sombra contra el calor; pues el aliento de los crueles es como turbión contra el muro.
God is over all; He is Omnipotent. All we need to do is trust. He will not let His people fall. Put your faith and trust in God and Jesus and you can and will stand through all.
2For what portion of God is there from above? and what inheritance of the Almighty from on high?
3Is not destruction to the wicked? and a strange punishment to the workers of iniquity?
4Does not he see my ways, and count all my steps?
5If I have walked with vanity, or if my foot has hurried to deceit;
6Let me be weighed in an even balance that God may know my integrity.
2 Porque ¿qué galardón me daría de arriba Dios, y qué heredad el Omnipotente desde las alturas? 3 ¿No hay quebrantamiento para el impío, y calamidad inesperada para los que obran iniquidad? 4 ¿No ve Él mis caminos, y cuenta todos mis pasos? 5 Si anduve con mentira, y si mi pie se apresuró a engaño, 6 sea yo pesado en balanzas de justicia, y que Dios conozca mi integridad
Does God really owe us anything? Sometimes, we as people think He does. We owe God everything. I ask You my Father, to keep me and show me the path You desire for me. If I am misled or do wrong in Your eyes, please set me straight. I ask Your blessings my Lord, but most of all, let Your will be done.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
El principio de la sabiduría es el temor de Jehová: Los insensatos desprecian la sabiduría y la enseñanza.
It is not a fear as we fear other things, it is a greater fear. It is awe! God is all in all. He knows all, no matter what you are trying to hide, He knows. I praise You my Lord, my Savior and my King. Please have mercy upon our souls. In the name of the mighty Lord Jesus.
And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Y dijo al hombre: ‘El temor (La reverencia) del Señor es sabiduría, Y apartarse del mal, inteligencia.
Some wise words from Job. It is really so simple. We must fear God and depart from all evil. Thoughts, deeds and any evil thing must be out from us. God will bless us if we live as such. If we do slip up, if we repent, He will forgive, but we should always be striving to be perfect.
Whosoever digs a pit shall fall in it: and he that rolls a stone, it will return upon him.
El que cava un hoyo caerá en él, y el que hace rodar una piedra, sobre él volverá.
For those of us that have thoughts of revenge or attacking another person in secret, we need to take this scripture seriously. For those of us who have been attacked or certain individuals are devising plots against you, Trust God! Their own devices will come back upon them. When people lie against you, their lies will be uncovered. It may take a lot of time, but God does Justice in His time. His time is the best time. I have seen it and know. Praise His Holy Name!
1God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
2Therefore will we not fear, though the earth do change, And though the mountains be shaken into the heart of the seas;
3Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, Though the mountains tremble with the swelling thereof. Selah
1 Dios es nuestro refugio y fortaleza,
nuestro pronto auxilio en las tribulaciones.
2 Por tanto, no temeremos aunque la tierra sufra cambios,
y aunque los montes se deslicen al fondo de los mares;
3 aunque bramen y se agiten sus aguas,
aunque tiemblen los montes con creciente enojo.
Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
Adorad al SEÑOR con reverencia, y alegraos con temblor. Honrad al Hijo para que no se enoje y perezcáis en el camino, pues puede inflamarse de repente su ira. ¡Cuán bienaventurados son todos los que en El se refugian!
I love how long before Jesus came to Earth as a man, David spoke of Him with awe and admiration. We need to understand that God is everything–EVERYTHING. There is nothing more important in our lives than worshiping and serving God.
